Glittery, sparkly, eyes!

I love a glittery, sparkly, eye. If I'm putting eye colour on, I need it to be bold and bright.

My secret weapon in any eyeshadow is primer - specifically Bourjois Eye Primer 24 Hr (£6.99), Superdrug. This stuff is … [Read more...]

When I first received it, before I looked at the press release, I thought it was going to be a hidden sharpener, and I was really quite disappointed when it wasn't! I also am not sure where I can get … [Read more...]

Benefit launch Porefessional Pearl Primer

Benefit launch The Porefessional Pearl Primer just after Christmas - perfect for the whole Korean K-beauty-led 'glass skin' trend that you are going to know all about come 2018 - trust me. The idea behind it is, of course, perfect skin.

Super shiny, but perfectly matte … [Read more...]

The two I've tried are the metal and sparkle. The Rich Sparkle comes in four shades - Moonstone, and Sun Flare, Volcanic, and … [Read more...]
